Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.

Getting there is generally pretty easy for anyone living in the US, Europe and much of Latin America with numerous direct flights to Cancun. Once you’re there, the region offers a great mix of culture (incredible Mayan ruins, charming colonial towns) and magnificent beaches, It’s also very easy to get around. The Yucatan Peninsula also offers a superb variety of accommodation, especially suitable for honeymoons, with atmospheric, luxurious ‘hacienda hotels’ in the countryside, boutique hotels in the towns and a huge range of options at the beach from small, uncommercial boho hotels in Tulum to larger, luxury hotels with a wide range of facilities in the Riviera Maya.

What better place to travel on your honeymoon other than the City of Love, aka. Paris? There are some of the most romantic views you can enjoy like the Eifell tower at night, many of the world’s most romantic restaurants, and many other landmarks like the Wall of Love in Montmartre.

Nice — in the south of France, Nice is a perfect location for a honeymoon. Nice is located in the Mediterranean, so you know the weather will be perfect, and you can take several day trips to places like Monaco or Marseilles.

Trying to pick a few places that aren’t covered by typical Honeymoon location posts, Sydney is a getaway simply because of it’s a location for US based travelers. The time zone difference allows Honeymooners to completely unplug, and visit a place that has opposite seasons than the US — so, if you visit in what would be winter in the US, it is summer in Sydney. There’s lots to do, great food, and plenty of other nearby cities to visit, including Melbourne and Brisbane.


This product was recommended by Helder Santos from TO DO ALGARVE

Algarve is the most popular touristic destiny in Portugal for the amazing weather, the food is excellent (especially if you like fish and shellfish), amazing landscapes, plenty of activities, most of the locals speak English and everyone is very friendly because they love tourists. Especially for the honeymoon, Hotels and services are fantastic for the occasion. In 2019 Algarve was rewarded by world travel awards, as the Best Europe Beach Destiny. At the moment Portugal is listed as one of the top 10 most safe countries in the world for COVID-19, all the tourism companies in Algarve are certified for COVID-19, and must have the Clean & Safe badge.

When it comes to romantic, you can’t do much better than the land of the tango. Embodied in Argentina’s signature dance are all thrills and exhilaration of a love affair that leaves you convinced you’ve found the one. And the country follows this same pattern – the passion of the people, the beauty of the landscapes and the cool sophistication of the major cities and culture make Argentina a great place for all travellers, but perhaps honeymooners above all others. From the red wines of Mendoza, the faded grandeur of Buenos Aires to the majestic natural beauty of the Patagonia and the Andes, Argentina just exudes romance.


This product was recommended by Sergio Ramírez from viajesavietnam

Hanoi, Sapa and Halong Bay should be enough for a perfect honeymoon, but you have Hue and Hoi An in the center, Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta in de South and, moreover, maybe the best food all over the world, the people is really friendly and it’s a safe place.


This product was recommended by Samantha Wragg from Coco Travels

I think the Bahamas is one of the best places to travel to on honeymoon because it has it all – stunning beaches, great nightlife, and some of the best luxury resorts in the world. It’s perfect for the best of both worlds too – you can chill out on the beach or by the pool with some delicious cocktails or you can get active and go snorkelling or try your hand at some watersports. There are also lots of once in a lifetime animal experiences like swimming with dolphins or pigs and feeding iguanas, guaranteed to give you some great honeymoon memories.

The Maldives

This product was recommended by Cristina from Honest Travel Stories

If you’re looking into that magic island life kind of thing and you think it’s a once in a lifetime experience and it may be worth a financial splurge from your side- Indonesia – if you want to combine the adventure/sightseeing/cultural immersion in Java with the awesome beaches in Gili (yes, Indonesia is more than just Bali)- Japan – if you want something special and can handle a huge amount of new world, new us happening around you

Maui, Hawaii

This product was recommended by Tahryn Nicastro from Shore to Sea Vacations

Maui is what Honeymoon dreams are made of since it offers an excellent balance of natural beauty and things to do. Romance is abound across the island as you experience the spirit of Aloha, gorgeous scenery and amazing experiences like swimming with turtles, watching the sun rise at the top of a dormant volcano or taking in Mother Nature’s show as the sun sets over the Pacific. The local dining scene is fantastic and with a range of resorts for all budgets, it’s hard to beat! Check out my sample itinerary on the link below for a taste of what a honeymoon could look like there. It’s a hot destination among my clients and also my favorite since I honeymooned there as well!

The Amalfi Coast

This product was recommended by Katie Dames from Feely Feelings

The Amalfi Coast is a popular tourist destination and a fantastic spot for your honeymoon getaway. It’s a romantic locale with awesome views, beautiful architecture, and wonderful beaches. It has pleasant weather all year round, although it’s most popular as an attraction during the summer months. You can enjoy romance and also participate in fun activities from visiting Pompeii to enjoying the nightlife to checking out some of the luxurious hotels that the Amalfi Coast has to offer.

Lanai, Hawaii

This product was recommended by Anastasia Iliou from Travel Goals Club

Lanai, Hawaii, is a spectacular destination for a honeymoon. Maui is supposedly one of the most popular honeymoon destinations, but that’s why you should pick Lanai instead. Maui can get crowded and is very touristy, while Lanai is much more secluded and romantic. You can stay at the beautiful Four Seasons at Lanai, visit the Lanai Cat Sanctuary, take an ATV tour, go hiking, or just enjoy the beach for a week. Why visit another tourist town when you can enjoy secluded relaxation on an island just as beautiful?

Krabi, Thailand

This product was recommended by Asen Stoyanchev from Gear Up Hiking

No place is richer in different experiences than Thailand. Even though being a touristic place it’s not as populated and crazy as Phuket. There are plenty of opportunities to relax, party, go to the beach, and walk and enjoy nature. The locals are super friendly, the prices are cheap and the food is delicious.

Algonquin Park, Canada

This product was recommended by Asen Stoyanchev from Gear Up Hiking

For couples who like nature, this is an amazing trove of wild life and splendid greenery. There are many lake cottages to rent and even more hiking trails to explore. Being a well-arranged Provincial Park, the place offers ways to avoid the city hustle and bustle and at the same time there are many restaurants and things to do like kayaking, hiking, biking, swimming,, etc. I’ve been here last year.

Siem Reap, Cambodia

This product was recommended by Asen Stoyanchev from Gear Up Hiking

This is a place like no other. Cambodia is a poor country that’s strikingly beautiful. I’ve been to the legendary Angkor Wat temple where the movie Lara Croft was shot. It’s a magical place with rich history and ancient temple remains. There are small lakes and the whole park is full of monkeys. It’s a must-see place.

Lombok Island – Indonesia

This product was recommended by Sirarpi Sahakyan from Self Development Secrets

Unlike its superstar sister-island Bali, Lombok is less populated and no less beautiful. With breathtaking bays, white sand beaches and azure blue waters it can be considered as a perfect honeymooner’s paradise. In Lombok, you will enjoy a more serene vacation while escaping crowded Bali’s rhythm. Moreover, you can climb up the majestic Mount Rinjani as part of your adventure. Lombok is one of the best places for a honeymoon thanks to its forest, wildlife, waterfalls, and villages for an authentic flavor of Indonesia.

Bali has become a real hotspot for honeymoon travelers. Bali is still an affordable destination, and the quality of the vacation is competitive with typical Honeymoon hotspots such as The Maldives, Bahamas, etc. Bali offers a broader range of activities, which is an advantage compared to the Maldives. You can find anything you wish for, quiet resorts, adventure, fun, and cozy places to enjoy lunch or dinner. It’s kind of a new thing for honeymooners, who are continually looking for something different. Bali also has very high standards when it comes to food options. Their food from Asian to Western. From my experience, Couples have always been very happy visiting Bali. Many of them come back the following year because 14 days is not enough to explore everything. If you are looking for a honeymoon that offers more than just luxurious relaxation, then Bali is the destination for you.

Bocas del Toro, Panama

This product was recommended by Kyla Egan from Impactful Tourism Consultancy

Bocas del Toro is a tropical archipelago on the Caribbean coast of Panama. Easily accessible from Panama City or Costa Rica, the islands are famous for their clear blue water and tropical jungles. Due to the remote location of the islands, many of the hotels and retreats are environmentally conscientious and offer all inclusive wellness and culinary services. During the day travellers can snorkel, kayak, hike, surf or dine in the ocean front restaurants. If travellers are interested in a party atmosphere, they can head to the colourful main island of Isla Colon, for a drink, salsa dancing, and activities in the main square. The variety of activities in Bocas del Toro, as well as its serene atmosphere, makes the Caribbean islands a perfect location for honeymooners to relax and recharge.

The Miraflores District of Lima, Peru

This product was recommended by Simone Collins from Travelmax

Many couples imagine there being a tradeoff between a luxurious wedding or honeymoon and something more practical, like a downpayment on a house. With two of the world’s top ten restaurants, gorgeous seaside gardens, amazing museums, beautiful rentable apartments with ocean views, spa treatments, and hundreds of small gourmet restaurants—all charging a fraction of the price one would see in Europe, North America, or Asia, honeymooning in the Miraflores District of Lima, Peru permits couples to have a luxurious honeymoon without breaking the bank.

The Cotswolds

This product was recommended by Simone Collins from Travelmax

The Costwolds are ideal for new couples that love history, film locations, road trips, architecture, gorgeous landscapes, and photography. With gorgeous old manor homes converted into bed & breakfasts and local sights to satisfy a broad range of interests (including Stonehenge, the Roman baths in Bath, Bath’s Royal Crescent famous in so many period films, and Castle Combe—one of the most picturesque little spots in the world), the Costwolds present a charming road tripping option to English-speaking Americans looking for something romantic and other but still quite comfortable.

Edinburgh, Scotland

This product was recommended by Simone Collins from Travelmax

Honeymoons are all about awesome photo opportunities, great food, and romance. Edinburgh caters to these factors in spades while also being delightfully walkable and surprisingly affordable. The Royal Mile, bookended by Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, is packed to the gills with little treasures to uncover in its various closes and historical buildings—plus there are plenty of places to pop in for a snack. From Edinbrugh, it’s easy to jaunt out on day trips to famous Scottish landmarks like Balmoral (still in use by the royal family) and St. Andrews (where golfing fans can geek out at the world’s oldest golf course). We recommend mixing cozy and affordable Airbnbs with a splurge night or two in hotels like the Witchery, which is nestled right below Edinburgh Castle in a stunning sixteenth Century building. As an added bonus, honeymooners will literally get more out of each day during the summer—the sun doesn’t set until 10:00pm.

Rome, Italy

This product was recommended by Andrea Matone from Rome Photographer Studio

Rome is known as the Eternal city not just because it offers the traveller the physical representation of time passing. Showcasing remarkable historical and artistic wonders everywhere you go. But also because the city has had the strength to rebuilt itself from ruins. Becoming a symbol of power and immortality. Managing to survive even the darkest times. Gaining a place in the world for importance and influence. Eternal and immortal. Strong and prestigious. This describes not only the city of Rome. But also the link that ties together a newlywed couple ready to start their new life together with a honeymoon. Which will be remembered year after year. And will represent a place where they can easily go back to from anywhere in the world. To celebrate their union time after time. Eternal and immortal.

Batanes Island, Philippines

This product was recommended by Samantha Moss from Romantific

Batanes Island situated in the northern tip of the Philippines is one of the most go-to nature paradises in the country. This small island is filled with green mountains, caves, and white-sand beaches that is surrounded by crystal clear waters and are only run by locals. No hotels, just rustic cottages surrounded by lush green lands. It’s the perfect place to just relax, have fun, and enjoy various seafood delicacies away from the hustle and bustle of city life. One can simply get lost in the natural and well-preserved beauty of Batanes.

Jeju Island, South Korea

This product was recommended by Samantha Moss from Romantific

There are so many beautiful destinations in South Korea, but if its a honeymoon you’re after then Jeju island is the place to be. It’s like the Hawaii of South Korea, filled with spectacular beaches and boasts the majestic Hallasan Mountain, the highest peak of the country. There’s so much to do and see in Jeju; such as walk inside lava tubes, go diving with the famous lady divers of the island, visit the Loveland park, or simply stroll around the scenic island. And if you love seafood, well Jeju has so much to offer taken fresh from its clear waters.
